This story bothers me. I cant believe that a officer would handle a pregnant women in this manner. And the fact that it was because she was grilling on the sidewalk in front of her own home is by far the most bizarre thing. I don't see how it was an issue. Who called the cops or did the cops just feel it was their duty to free up the sidewalk? You walk around, just as in any other case when someone is occupying space on the sidewalk. I rarely listen to the people who like making everything about race, but in this instance, what else is there? Or am I just missing something? Excessive force and violence against women and people of color has to stop. What is also quite disturbing is that she is being treated this way on her own porch in front of her  young child.  What happens when this little girls grows?  How will this affect her too?
